I had the same problem with the interior light in an Advantium microwave. Called GE Service since it is supposedley not a user serviceable feature. Their solution was to turn off circuit breaker and back on to reset comouter. It worked!!!! Light works fine now. Hope this helps.

If you're saying that the inside light won't come on when you opoen the door, then you probably have a bad door switch, most likely the upper one. The most common causes are opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting the STOP pad first, broken switch mounts, and damage to or slamming the door. These switches are locally available at appliance parts companies. I have a helpful text file with critical safety information and info on diagnosing and replacing door switches. You can find it by doing a search on Yahoo.com (not Google) for microwave doorsw.txt I appreciate your rating of this answer.

Whirlpool Electric combination Microwave and Oven -- when I try to turn on the microwave the words "door" comes on screen and unit does not start. The door does latch but still does not start....

I could have been more specific with a model number, but if this general answer doesn't do the trick, feel free to contact me with your full model and specific symptoms here.

It's usually a bad door switch or door switch mount. My helpful text file on door switches is here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If it's one of those overdesigned Whirlpools, it can be one of many components. See the example photo at the bottom of this reply.

Have a Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave. Light bulb

no, no, no,,,its far to dangerous for you to open up the case of your microwave to change a light buld,,,
dont even think of going in there,,,
inside your microwave there are 1000,s of volts stored up in a capacitor if you tuch it you could kill yourself
have you ever seen a police stun gun working,,
it realy hurts you,,,,,
inside your microwave is the stun guns big brother
it dont just stun you,, it could kill you,,,
thats why you dont go inside it ok,,,
the light buld can be changed from inside the case normaly if it cant be, then drop it in the shop for a repair or use it with out a light in it,,
dont try and kill yourself just for a light buld

I have Emerson Microwave #mw8999sv which has the Express Cook option- cooking 1 - 6 minutes. How do I cook for 1 minute 30 seconds, etc.? Thank you.

The owner's manual is here. On page 10 we find:

COOKING IN ONE STAGE
1. Press the POWER button; the Microwave and High
Cook indicators will light and “PL 10” will light in the
display.
2. Press the POWER button different times to set the
desired power; the display will show the percentage
you chose. If selecting power level 70%-10%, the
Low Cook indicator will light instead of the High
Cook indicator.
3. Press number keys to set the desired cooking time.
OPERATION(CONTINUED)
4. Press the START/+30SEC. button to start cooking;
the Microwave and one of the Cook indicators will
blink and the display will countdown the remaining
cooking time in minutes and seconds. It will beep
five times when cooking is completed.

I have a Whirlpool gold accubake microwave / oven combo model number GMC305PDS07. The microwave will not turn on and will display "DOOR". I think it is thinking that the door is open?. Please help.

Press and hold the DELAY START TIME button for +5 secs and a chime will sound. The option to toggle between SND HI and SND LO will come up, pressing Delay Start Time will change it between these options.

How do you turn the beep off?

Finally worked out how to do this today! I don't know what model you've got (I don't know what one I've got - it's built in and we've lost the manual) but try pressing the START button for six seconds. This should change the default from 30 beeps to 3 beeps. Bliss.

No programming tone

On page 11 of the manual:

Disabling the timer reminder tones:

To disable the reminder tones, press and
hold the Timer Set pad for 5 seconds. To
enable the tones, follow the same step.

To shut off all (audible) signals except for error tones and the hidden function signal:

Press and hold the Stop Time pad for5 seconds. A short tone will sound to tell you the signals have been changed. Repeat the above step to turn the signals back on.

If that doesn't work, the next thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so.

Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave won't start

I would first suggest unplugging the oven for a few minutes to give it a reset. On Whirlpool brand microwaves, you will hear a series of beeps when you hit START if one of the following is true: - the control panel is not programmed correctly - the door is not shut - there is a problem with the door latch system - there is a problem with the control panel If you do not have your owner's manual, you can download it here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/literature_search_results.jsp?searchTerm=RMC275PD#literror It doesn't sound like the control panel is locked. When the control panel lock is activated, you will see "Loc" and a lock symbol in the display and only the clock, timer, and oven light will operate. If that does not solve the problem, then you have oneof the other problems as listed above. If you need further help, please reply / add a comment here.
